We base our prices on the unique needs of each person we support. Generally, we charge $35 per hour, which includes comprehensive support from diverse experts and care teams.
Biscochito offers a Total LifeSM approach to aging in place that includes customized outings and activities according to plan, such as attending a grandchild’s soccer game, hosting a dinner party, or going to museums and cultural events. It also involves support for daily living—things like personal care and hygiene assistance, cooking and meal preparation, transportation to events and appointments, light housekeeping and laundry, shopping and errands, medication reminders, and health monitoring.
Yes! We got our start 15 years ago caring for people with developmental disabilities, including older adults facing the physical and mental challenges of aging, as well as other physical and mental conditions. Our care managers and expert advisors are on staff to ensure we provide proper support for each person.
Absolutely. We understand that your need for many types of support exists no matter where you’re living. Our Total LifeSM plan considers your living situation and what services you may or may not need at any particular time. Your plan is updated regularly, so if your living situation changes, your plan will change with it.
Our caregivers are background checked and carefully vetted both professionally and personally to ensure your safety and comfort. Many Biscochito caregivers have deep experience in elder care, home care, and related fields. Once a caregiver is hired, we provide thorough training, ensure they are certified in CPR and first aid, and connect them to a network of support so they always have the resources they need to stay well while caring for you. It should also be said that we treat our caregivers as partners—with the utmost respect for the important role they play.
A biscochito is the state cookie of New Mexico. Flavored with anise, cinnamon, and sugar, this shortbread-style treat is a hallmark of winter gatherings. Grandparents pass down the family recipe to their children and grandchildren in the warmth of the kitchen. For us, the biscochito is a wonderful representation of the sweetness that comes from a custom recipe for living well, surrounded by love, as we age.
We are based in Santa Fe and serve The City Different, neighboring villages, and Albuquerque.
